And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. Deuteronomy 6: 6-7.
If you have a child with special needs, we welcome your family to our church. We want to help any child or student who faces unique challenges related to physical, mental, behavioral, medical or emotional needs that would benefit from additional support, enabling them to fully participate in the life of the United Church of Hinesburg.
You are welcome to drop children 5 and younger off in the Parish Hall prior to the service or at any time during the worship service. Our nursery will always be clean and well organized and staffed with no less than 2 trained staff.
Sunday School (grades K-6)
The young people in our church are able to worship with the entire congregation and have their own time to learn and experience the stories of God’s love. After the Children’s Message in our worship service, our young people proceed to the Parish Hall for music, sharing time, lessons and activities.
For the 2019-20 school year, we are using A Joyful Path as our curriculum. This is a "behavior over belief" curriculum developed by Progressive Christianity.
These lessons are designed to nourish children spiritually and teach them the foundation of the teachings of Jesus and other wisdom teachers.
